Conclusions: Taken together, these results provide the first experimental evidence of the significant antinociceptive effect of HEPm and ISO in animal models of acute pain without causing sedation or locomotor dysfunction. This effect appears to be mediated, at least in part, by the activation of opioid receptors and/or by the inhibition of TRPV1 and TRPA1 channels.
The locomotor dysfunction may lead to the neuromechanic disorder which leads to impaired plasticity of the nervous system and consequently the nerve cell physiology is also disrupted.
